Bayliner 255 SB (2011-)

1 x 300-hp MerCruiser 350

Brief Summary

Bayliner’s 255 is a step up from its smallest trailerable cruiser, the 245 SB. Naturally the 255 is larger below and has a different cockpit layout, so boaters looking to move up to the cruising life style should check them both out as the 255 is about 10k more. We recently tested the 255 and discover a couple of things that may surprise you. First, she is no wilting lily when it comes to heft at 6,480 lbs. (2,945 kgs.), and second, this single-engine cruiser is remarkably easy to dock, thanks largely to her Bravo III stern drive.
